Cafe Turns the World on its Side

Looking something like a cafe out of Alice in Wonderland, the clever designers over at Nemaworkshop have created a place to get espresso that turns the world on its side. Inspired by the nearby New York Public Library, custom printed bookshelf tiles run along the floor, up the wall and along the ceiling. Herringbone wood flooring covers the side wall and lights cantilever out from the opposite wall. Turning your head on its side brings the optical illusion into focus.
